Pond vleis vir verkeersligte

20 January 2019 | Infrastructure

Minder as N$250 000 is verlede jaar deur die Windhoekse stadsradad vir die herstel van 31 verkeersligte spandeer.

Volgens Harold Akwenye, korporatiewe kommunikasie en bemarkingsbestuurder by die stadsraad, beloop die kostes gemiddeld N$8 000 per verkeerslig, maar kan dit ook enigiets tussen N$2 200 en N$17 300 beloop. “'n Volledige installasie kos sowat N$400 000, met die beheerder wat ons tot N$80 000 uit die sak kan jaag,” het hy in 'n onderhoud met Windhoek Express gesê. “Die kostes kan in die toekoms selfs meer beloop.”

Hoewel die stadsraad 'n begroting het vir sulke ongelukke, is die operasionele begroting bestem vir roetine onderhoud en opgraderings, “veral om ou beheerders te vervang”, sê hy.

Verkeersligte wat erg deurloop is dié op die hoek van Onafhanklikheidsrylaan en Hans Dietrich-Genscherstraat, Mandume Ndemufayo-rylaan en David Hosea Meroro-weg en Onafhanklikheidsrylaan, en die Westelike verbypad. Verkeersligte is in die afgelope jaar twee keer vervang by hierdie kruisings vervang.

“Die doel van verkeersligte is om die verkeer te reguleer en te verseker die verkeer vloei,” het Akwenye gesê. ­Wanneer 'n verkeerslig beskadig is, veroorsaak dit 'n opeenhoping van verkeer, “wat baie frustrasie onder motoriste kan veroorsaak, asook die risiko van ander ongelukke”.

Motoriste word gemaan om by die spoedbeperkings te hou, padreëls na te kom en versigtig te bestuur, en veral op die uitkyk vir voetgangers en fietsryers te wees.
